2021 Goals Review for August

I worked harder on my exercise and walking this month. I didn’t lose weight but I think I’m toning up. I also did a lot of knitting and finished two sweaters. I read a lot but not much nonfiction. It’s been too hot to do much in the yard but I hope to make up for that when the temperatures cool off. 

  1. Lose 5 lbs. – My weight stayed the same this month but I’m doing a lot of core exercises. 

  2. Knit 12 squares on my national park blanket. (There are 60 squares in the pattern and this is year 4 of the project.) – 51 squares complete. I’ve knit 2 squares this month for a total of 12 squares this year. This goal is complete. 

  3. Knit a sweater. – I finished the Nesting Cardigan,  The Rocket Tee, Bright Axis, and Recalibrate. – This goal is completed

  4. Design 3 new patterns – I published two designs (The Chinese New Year Cowl and the Double Happiness Socks). I’ve been working on a new sock design - Graveyard Field Socks. 

  5. Read 12 nonfiction books. – 11 books completed so far.

    1. Counting by Deborah Stone

    2. My Paddle to the Sea by John Lane

    3. Late Migrations: A Natural History of Love and Loss by Margaret Renkl

    4. Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her by Melanie Rehak
